winter sport in London

what a thrill ! Monday when I realised the pow was going to stay a while I decided to swap a day of work for a day of back country ski in Hampstead Heath park. I was unsure how to get here though, at the end the best option was simply to attach the pair of skis on my bike.

yepeee ! thanks to pinkindus who knows nina_kate , (now I am part of a mafia) I have been given the opportunity to feature my goggles in the last issue of bizarre magazine. I really like the result, a bit disapointed though that they didn't pick the shot where Kate was wearing her fox with the cute little goggles specially made for him. One can see them during a split second in the video here

I must say I am a bit proud to be a micro tiny part of it....

Finally my situation in London has settle down a little, thanks to pinkindus I am living in an amazing space :-))))))))
my workshop is now enclosed in a geodetic dome, a very low budget self built construction (dome structures are the most efficient way to enclose a space: it requires the minimum amount of material ).

back to civilisation

august has been like a storm. sorry for my late replies to all your emails.
i have been trying to build a kind of small stock for my stall at infest, including some silicone bracelets/jewellery, plus the ongoing orders to pay the rent, PLUS the big change in my life since my installation in the northumberland: the planning of my move to LOndon just the week after infest :-)))
i have been living like a monk in the north penines, i will try to live like a monk in London.
and now i have to pack a high volume of junk/machinery/prototypes/furnitures and a dog into a 20cubic meters van.

plan B if no money: no plan B
plan C: no plan C at the current edition time

new machinery for a shiny hippy bright future

how to lift a 150kg weight of cast iron and put it on bench without any help, just your hands , no tools, no crane, no muscles (i am a kind of prawn suffering from malnutrition), no pulleys, no ropes, no neighbours, no money, no donkey, no magic, no hope. I got inspiration from the pyramid builders (even if their secret is still well kept, there are a few theories around it) and i can tell it works !
